Register for FEC2: "How to Develop a Concept / Idea into Clothing & How to Draw" - Saturday 6 April @ 12 noon

Hello Everyone!!!  Hope you've had a great week!

This is just a quick update on our Fashion Entrepreneurship Course (Volume 2) which will now hold next Saturday, 6 April, 2013.  We had to move it due to the Easter weekend based on requests and be honest... I think I also need a break. ;-)  

For those who have not attended any of the Volumes in our Fashion Entrepreneurship Course, I'll give a brief overview of what the Course is about and, particularly what Volume 2 is about.

And So I Made the Cover of Another Financial Magazine... :-D :-D :-D

FinIntell Magazine - Pages 44 - 51

Haha!  Not bad for a fashion designer huh?!  2 covers in 1 quarter.  I'm not exactly sure of how I managed to get on the cover of a Financial / Business Magazine but I guess I must have impressed them after the interview.

So I got a call on Monday that the interview came out in the February - March 2013 edition but I almost fell when I saw the cover!  WHAT a surprise I tell you!  I so was not expecting it but what can I say... a whole 8 pages!!!  Like wow-wee!!!  Ok... I really have to calm down now...  

Just check out how colourful my office looks...  Not bad at all!  Initially I was surprised when they came with their photographer, camera and props and all but guess the pictures speak for themselves!  They look stunning!  The brains behind the magazine clearly take it seriously!


I am sure some of you may not have heard about FinIntell so I'll give you a brief overview of the magazine.

Foundation Course in Fashion Design - Weekday Option Begins 19 March, 2013!

Hello Everyone!!!  Hope you've had a great week.  I have had a HECTIC weekend and start to the week so please accept my apologies for the delay in posting this new alternative to the current weekend-only option of the Foundation Course in Fashion Design.

So far, we have successfully run the Foundation Course in Fashion Design as a Saturday only option, perfect for professionals with hectic weekday work schedules.  But recently, we have been receiving enquiries on weekday options for those who are available for classes during the week....which is great! So here we are, making available the weekday alternative to the weekend option.

The best thing about the weekday option is that you complete the Course in half the time! :-D  Yes yes!  Meaning you will be done with Level 1a in 3 weeks (rather than the current 6 weeks for the weekend option).  Sounds fab right?  Yes I thought so too.

So how does this work?  I'll tell you just now...

One Theme, Three Different Interpretations... Excellent Work from my Amazing Corps Members...:-D

Hello Everyone!!!  Hope you had a great start to the month!  

I suddenly realized that I have been a  bit silent on some of my training activities.  Contrary to what some of you might think, I may have been a bit silent on the blog but my workload has soooo not reduced.  I completed the Fashion Entrepreneurship Course for Corps Members (FECM), ended and started another Level 1a stream of the Foundation Course in Fashion Design, am currently running 2 Level 1b streams and about to move to Level 2a and in between, I have managed to speak to various people at various events.  I think the only thing that has pretty much suffered is my admin work which has managed not to reduce as the days go by :-(

BUT anywayz.... here I am telling you about the recently concluded FECM training.  To say I was completely impressed with those who handed in their final projects is such an understatement.  There I was thinking I had given them an impossible task since I was not really sure if many of them could remember all I taught them during the Course.  But alas, when those who handed in their projects did so, my jaw hit the ground.  Turns out I underestimated them and this only proves that all it takes really is to point people in the right direction and you will be amazed at what they will churn out.

You check out the stories behind the collection and tell me you are not impressed!
